【7月20日】第58回STIG PoPセミナー:The role of the IAEA in the development of nuclear law

第58回 STIG PoPセミナー「The role of the IAEA in the development of nuclear law」を7月20日(木) に開催しました。講師に、国際原子力機関 のWolfram Tonhauser 氏(Section Head for Nuclear and Treaty Law, Office of Legal Affairs) を招き、原子力安全と核セキュリティの問題に対する国際的な法的責任の在り方や、国際的合意やIAEAの安全基準をどのように各国の法制度の中で実行していくか、といった話題を議論しました。 セミナーには、東京大学の学生に加えて、複数の大学教員や官庁の法務部門等で働く実務家など、23名が参加しました。
参加者からは、原子力賠償において国際標準(原子力事業者に一義的な賠償責任を負わせること)とは異なる法制度をとる原子力新規導入検討国があるのはなぜか、より強い法的拘束力を持ったピアプレッシャーの枠組みを構築することはできないか、といった具体的な質問が提起され、活発な議論が行われました。(長岡技術科学大学 村上健太准教授)

The presentation will describe the normative role of the IAEA in nuclear law with an emphasis on nuclear safety and security. It will outline the relevant international legal framework, the Agency’s law making authority and how IAEA safety standards and security guidance documents are developed and implemented. The presentation will also describe and touch upon current issues and trends in international nuclear law.
